Your activity log shows your Facebook activity in chronological order. Your activity includes things like content you’ve added to Facebook (such as posts you created and things you've liked), actions you've taken on Facebook (like adding or removing friends) and other information about you on Facebook. To find something specific, use the filters to narrow down your search.

  1. Click your profile picture in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Select Settings & Privacy, then tap Activity Log.
From here, you can review content by:
